“Well, it sounds like you’ve gone through a whirlwind of emotions for a Sunday morning!”
What can make someone so emotional on a Sunday?
Yes, We Are Talking Bacon!
So much bacon goodness to share – from controversy to celebration, and seaweed too!
And so begins the story of bacon, three ways:
1. A bacon complaint gone viral
2. an amazing study on the health benefits of bacon
3. bacon-flavored seaweed!
Let’s get started!
Tesco’s Back Bacon Rashers!
It all began in England, when a dissatisfied customer went viral against Tesco food store for “shorting” him one rasher of bacon!
A “rasher” of bacon in England is a strip, so this guy got crazy for missing out on one of his bacon strips!
As you can see, “back bacon” aka a bacon rasher, has a different shape than traditional American bacon, but it no doubt is just as delicious, so of COURSE he would be angry!
You must click on the story to see how this incredible bacon controversy played out, beginning with Tesco’s initial response back to him via twitter:
“Well, it sounds like you’ve gone through a whirlwind of emotions for a Sunday morning!”
Read the hilarious story that of course has a happy ending here:
I for one will never look at a “rasher” the same way again!
Now, onto a more serious, life-affirming discussion of our favorite meat:
Live Forever! Eat Bacon!
Yes, biting down on THIS will help you live forever!
OK, I have had a number of friends send me this study – knowing that I would appreciate bacon’s many health benefits…I mean, this chart says it all:
Here are some of the highlights:
Bacon contains thiamin, vitamin B12, zinc and selenium, which are all vital nutrients the body does not naturally produce.
B vitamins fight anemia and help you with high energy levels throughout the day. Bacon’s got lots of them!
Zinc and selenium are vital antioxidants, necessary for immune health. Bacon is full of them!
Bacon has less fat than you think, and NO trans fat!
Bacon is a natural mood enhancer!
Bacon contains omega-3 fatty acids, like those found in fish! Omega fatty acids reduce cholesterol!
The website “Bacon Today” actually has a “Top 10” list of bacon’s health benefits – read them all here!
And finally, I got a ton of notes pointing this out:
Thanks to Julie Sisk and others who shared this great report – Scientists have developed a seaweed that looks like this:
And it tastes like bacon! Read all about this amazing new invention right here:
Once again, bacon saves the day! In fact, bacon is so important that it now has its own social media guidelines:
Read all about these by clicking on my story here:
OK, now get healthy – get to your bacon!
